We analyze stability of equilibria for a delayed SIR epidemic model, in which population growth is subject to logistic growth in absence of disease, with a nonlinear incidence rate satisfying suitable monotonicity conditions. The model admits a unique endemic equilibrium if and only if the basic reproduction number R 0 exceeds one, while the trivial(More)
We investigate the class of general linear methods of order p and stage order q = p for the numerical solution of Volterra integral equations of the second kind. Construction of highly stable methods based on the Schur criterion is described and examples of methods of order one and two which are A-stable and have large regions of stability with respect to(More)
When a newly emerging human infectious disease spreads through a host population, it may be that public health authorities must begin facing the outbreaks and planning an intervention campaign when not all intervention tools are readily available. In such cases, the problem of finding optimal intervention strategies to minimize both the disease burden and(More)
